Sunshine Cathedral is excited to offer this once-in-a-lifetime bus tour to Selma, Montgomery, Atlanta and Savannah. Walk across the Edmund Pettis Bridge where so many marched with courage and conviction to combat racial injustice and voting rights. Visit the site where Seminarian Jonathan Daniels, a martyr of the Episcopalian Church, gave his life to save others. Explore the church and parsonage where Dr. King lived and led during the first decade of the Civil Rights Movement. Be inspired by the groundbreaking history of the Tuskegee Institute. The National Voting Rights Museum, The Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Dr. King Center and the Carter Center and Presidential Library & Museum are also included in this incredible itinerary.
We leave from Sunshine Cathedral Wednesday morning and head to Selma, Alabama where we will overnight at the Holiday Inn Express. On Thursday we will visit historic sites as we travel from Selma, to Montgomery and then on to Atlanta, Georgia. We will spend Friday visiting important civil and human rights locations in the city. Both Thursday and Friday evening are free to enjoy the city. We will be staying right in Midtown Atlanta at the Artmore Hotel. The MARTA station is right across the street from the hotel and the Midtown nightlife, including a thriving LGBTQ scene, are within walking distance or a short Uber ride.
On Saturday we will head out early and make our way to Savannah where we will have a couple hours to freely explore this incredibly preserved antebellum town. We will meet for lunch before getting on the road for home. We should arrive back at Sunshine Cathedral by 10 pm Saturday night.
